Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 13

Matt LaPorta

In the new look of the Wrap-Up, I will highlight the hot and cold players at each position. Why hear about how good the stud players are already doing when you can find out how well the widely available players are performing on the diamond? As always, let’s start with the list of key injuries.

Injuries

Shin-Soo Choo (OF), Cleveland Indians

One of the only offensive weapons in Cleveland, Choo sprained his right thumb and will be out 6-8 weeks.

Manny Ramirez (OF), L.A. Dodgers

A strained right hamstring landed Manny on the 15-day DL. He has been enjoying a modest season with a .322 avg and 8 HR.

Dallas Braden (SP), Oakland A’s

Mr. Perfect Game was forced out of his last start with elbow soreness and it looks like the injury is serious enough to land him on the DL.
